It’s the story of the nation’s favourite bird, the robin. Based on the real-life migration of a Scandinavian robin, the film sees a courageous, young and fully CG robin undertake an epic journey across mountains and sea before finally reaching his home destination, where a young girl eagerly awaits his annual return.

Upon his arrival, the robin is reunited with his companion. They share a festive treat (a Waitrose 1 mince pie) left out for them by the young girl as she watches on in delight. The story encapsulates the spirit of connection over the festive period and the joy of a host who provides the very best of welcomes. Because ‘At Christmas, there’s nothing quite like Waitrose’.
